Description

This trail starts by branching off of the Franconia Notch State Park Recreational Trail. It soon crosses under Route 3 and a footbridge, then begins ascending in earnest to its junction with the Indian Head Trail. Along this portion of the trail, be sure to take your time as you slog up the trail's steep, relentless grades.

From the Indian Head Trail junction, follow the Mount Pemigewasset Trail to the summit. Take care on the ledges when ice is present. For more information, check out the AMC's White Mountain Guide.

This trail is as described in the summary. It is steep for most of the way, but not overly so. I'm 66 and could make it to the summit without a break. It helps to have a trekking pole or hiking stick. Once near the summit the view is spectacular and worth the effort to get up there. Aug 10, 2018
